Does anyone…

Does anyone write letters or cards anymore?  Am speaking of snail mail the kind you sit down, take a pen and paper then seal it up in an envelope put a stamp on it and into a mail bin..probably the answer for most is no ~ ecards, enotes and email take the place of actually spending time sitting and actually writing on paper ~ if you think about it its  kind of a lost art of writing on paper ~ as I sit here looking at all these letters I have saved from various people that carefully have kept ~ a Christmas card from my Mom before she passed, a letter written from someone special long ago and at times I wish that I had one from my Dad just to remember his handwriting…people barely use cursive either as that is becoming a lost practice with schools not even teaching it ~ seems sad to me …


Sifting through memories 

At least am comfy and warm in this sweater, jeans & boots by AnaSTyle ~ gorgeous off the shoulder sweater that is ONLY at Designer Showcase for the month of January...Lorena includes what you see me wearing: sweater, jeans, heels ~ great fit as there are plenty of sizes for you ~ putting down the letters will give you a glimpse of the entire outfit by AnaSTyle


Wearing Lorena by AnaSTyle

I really should be inside and not freezing myself but am a tad on the nutty side LOL and for those that are fans of Designer Showcase they are celebrating an anniversary of being in SL for 7 years a very commendable amount of time as we all know stores come and go just like events ~ Aisha has been hard at work changing up the design and really is looking very classy ~ course I have not forgotten a closer look at this sweater that is fast becoming my go to outfit…


Lorena by AnaSTyle 

With the exception of the one shoulder this reminds me of my goto RL sweater that I finally had to discard it last year because it was just too holy *giggling* Ok so am sure that I mentioned it would not be just about fashion but stuff is stuff right ~ jeans are items, items are stuff ummm see where i’m going LOL…okie dokie Dena and a lot of things/stuff that will be presenting, displaying for you to enjoy and hey maybe you will want to grab our TAXI and head out to check them out ~ doors open tomorrow 5th…ENJOY ♥

Credits ~ and I have a lot to give to but FIRST and asked a dear friend of mine AƖƖysση Dωyєr-AρρƖєωнутє who is owner/creator of Something New if she could make me a pose with letters & such ~ fantastic job she did and I truly thank her ~ now am sure if you ask nicely she will put this out for sale as maybe a special hehehe and I will be showing off the other 2 poses in that set she made for me ~ next to thank is MiloJolina owner of Backdrop City who created the backdrop that I used ~ how ingenious she was taken gacha items from [PM]Pixel Mode & A.N.C. to make this fabulous scene and sharing it with all of us…to Anastacia Azalee creator/owner of AnaSTyles who has given me the opportunity of being able to show all of you her fabulous items ~  Last but NEVER ever least is Kay Weston from Image Essentials who created the pose I used called “Stair Down”..a lot of work goes into creating and we all must remember to give credit to those that work hard so we look good ♥ Thank you all!

New Beginnings…


2018 ~ Fresh Start 

Yes 2018 is a new year for new beginnings and it feels great ~ think there is a saying sometimes when a door closes another one opens guess that surely applies to me and if I am being cliche things do happen for a reason…you just need to take a moment and see beyond ~ like being dumped by a boyfriend, or a husband or a sponsor is something that is not life threatening, it is not the end of the world yet another beginning, another chance to restart possibly do things different…am not talking do overs that means you want another chance at either that same person, company or whatever it is a chance for a fresh start ~ the past is just that it is in the past and am not allowing myself to dwell on who said what about me, or who “tried” to bully me am going to focus on what I said in my earlier posts am choosing joy, am choosing to be happy ~ a very old friend that I have known in SL for hmm approximately 7 years who is wise and at times we do not always agree but gave me great advice these people do not own you, they should have no impact on your life and that friend was right ~ am not going to let others make me feel bad, feel guilty by standing by someone who I think is doing a kindness ~ maybe we all should take lessons in showing a little kindness to others instead of temper tantrums, being uber greedy, insinuating and accusing them of acts that were false and most of all, trying to push values that you do not believe in…again my choice for 2018 will be doing things that make me happy ~ I will only mention that again I won’t let a few small minded voices make me stop doing something that I love ~ so as I walk into 2018 my head will be looking straight ahead, there will be a smile on my lips, a twinkle in my eye with a little bit of feistiness as well as being just who I am ♥ Welcome to 2018 everyone! 

Credits go to  Precious Restless owner/creator of Boudoir that I got the pleasure of using this fabulous backdrop at Backdrop City ~ where the owner has graciously put all of these out for everyone to enjoy ~ thank you again ♥ As well as Image Essentials pose “Woman Stand” created by Kay Weston ~

Foggy start…

Waking up and seeing fog makes me smile ~ yes I am aware that most are not fans of fog but its the weekend am not going anywhere except to grab my cup of coffee and head outdoors to read a couple of chapters in the book am reading ~ must confess though that in all honesty it would not be a book am grabbing but my “Kindle Paperwhite” ~ just cannot imagine how far technology has come that my small Kindle has over 400 books inside it ~ that is amazing…plus reason I got not just a Kindle but a Paperwhite was the fact you can read outdoors without a glare like most tablets you are unable to use outside…I absolutely love that fact especially during summer sitting outside enjoying the sun and reading some of my favorite authors like James Patterson or John Grisham or even discovering new mystery writers as in  Liz Fenton & Lisa Steinke who wrote “The Good Widow” woah that was a page turner ~ was one of my Unlimited books from Amazon that I just finished reading ~ here is LINK if you like to check it out ~


Enjoying Coffee & Book

Oh did you notice am wearing one of Finale Coutures outfits Tyra that is at Designer Showcase this month ~ love such a great pair of jeans ~ as you can see on the knees they are shredded ~ its always nice to find Designers that pay attention to details ~ let me stand up to show you the rest of the outfit since the fog is rolling in pretty heavy ~


Close up of Tyra outfit 

The cropped sleeveless knitted sweater with the cutout pattern really makes this outfit such a keeper ~ and then you notice the belt as well another detail the designer has remembered ~


Bum view 

Turning around so you can also see the features on my bum from the design on the back pockets that she had to known my RL jeans look exactly like that ~ as well as the give in the fabric on the top so it does not stretch out when moving ~ 7 different color options to choose from beside the one I am wearing all in pastel colors ~ fitting my Maitreya like a second skin the way you just want your jeans to fit ~ plus making my bum look good too always helps ~ not fan of a saggy pants on my azz *giggling*


Tyra Outfit in Lilac

I would stick around but this fog is getting pretty heavy that am barely able to see in front of me as clumsy as I am no need to fall and break something ~ but you need to grab my TAXI and check this outfit Tyra by Finale Couture ~ month is halfway and you should not miss out on this and the price ~ till next time I send you each hugzz ~ peace out♥

Credits ~ My thanks to Kay from Image Essentials with this cute prop “Coffee Sophisticate” that gives you coffee and a book if wanted ~ also to Finale Couture for giving me the opportunity to show off your clothes again ~ thank you so much ~

Waiting for bus…

Was so surprised to be accepted to blog for Designer Showcase, being fairly new to blogging this is such a big for me so thank you to Ashia Convair for giving me this opportunity~ With that said am going to get on the next bus that comes along before I show you this delightful outfit from PurpleMoon Its called~ Wilah~


Wilah by PurpleMoon

Just take a look at the work in this top and bottom with its sun-ray pattern to the neckline and stitching to enhance the bodice then ties at the back with its tight little knot~ the shorts are trimmed with a white waist band and to the legs then have the added bonus of cute little laces to the front and the same pattern as the top to the back pockets~


Close look 

Now you get to choose from 5 different colors like the blue am wearing as well as black, tan, white and pink…This fit my Maitreya perfectly as the creator has made other body sizes as well but if size is a concern always please try on demo as the creator has one there for you…Having told you all about my outfit I think they must have taken this bus off this route so with have to hope my heels hold up when I start walking and talking of that had better show you these killer heels ~


Marith Heels by KC Couture 

They are gorgeous and come from KC Couture and are called Marith Heels and are made for not only Maitreya, but also Belleza, Slink and Tonic with a very extensive color hud that will have changes for the shoes and not to mention the zipper ~Nice  little slim criss cross laces to show of your lovely legs…Please check these and other items out at this months Designer Showcase here is your Taxi to take you there…As I leave to walk away am sad to say the bus never turned up so hope I don’t wear my best shoes out on the walk home..Till next time be safe ~ hugs Dena♥

And OMG you will love the way it shows off your spine at the back…..It will make that special person in your life want to reach out and touch you,and make sure everybody know who you came with ..:) A hint of black to the edging brings this dress into a class of its own..but let me show you the back so you can judge for yourselves…

Toast to Friendship

Have said it before it is nice to have that one friend in SL that you call “Bestie” and mine her name is Dena ~ like all friendships and relationships whether in RL or SL they are not perfect ~ you are just kidding yourself to believe a relationship is perfect~ absolutely no one is perfect and I shudder to think how boring that would even be ~ am far from perfect LOL gawd am very flawed and will tell you that in a heartbeat ~ but Dena puts up with me and my many moods and love her death for that alone as well as many other great qualities she does have plus the fact that we can sit and really talk/discuss things where its  RL stuff or SL, she knows am always here for her with my shoulder and ears to listen as well ~ since we never need an excuse to have a nice cocktail or a glass of champaige we walked down to the pier to watch the Sunset & enjoy a glass of champagne just to celebrate our friendship ~ oh and to show off some very chic dresses created by the same designer Tori of Tori’s Stylez…


Dresses by Tori’s Stylez

Both dresses are sexy, flirty and can be worn out for a night of dancing at one of those hot SL nite clubs or just enjoying social hour with friends ~


Harley by Tori’s Stylez

As you can see facing forward the nice lace pattern on the scoop neck of this cute mini  dress called “Harley”~ you can just feel the texture is pure raw silk that you know when it just slides on the feel is simply rich ~ from the spaghetti straps that will show off those gorgeous shoulders to how it is very form fitting to that body of yours….


Dena wearing Hazel by Tori’s Stylez

And the lace pattern continues around the back as well ~ course it does hug my nicely shaped bum too if you didn’t notice ~ giggling ~ oh yes this dress is available at Designer Showcase this month ~ and added bonus with this dress is there is a nice sheer version that will be included ~ you have 11 different color choices to choose from like Fuchsia, Passion, Grape, Magenta, Wine and lots more ~ color that you see on me is Teal ~ there will be a demo if you are concerned about sizes but as always she has such a variety of sizes that one will fit ~ Now Dena is also wearing Tori’s that is available at other event ~ am sure Dena  will be tell you about that in her upcoming blog post very soon…Designing Showcase is now open and you are going to enjoy shopping this month there after looking at all the items the Designers have out ~ there is so many goodies that I just can’t wait to show you..get your shopping list ready and make sure you put down this uber sexy dress by Tori’s Stylez at the top of your list…here is your TAXI so you can get shopping ~ Enjoy and remember life is too short to hate ♥
